If you follow rushisaband on Facebook and/or Twitter, you've likely run across some of the amazing Rush-themed comic art from FANTOONS that I've shared over the last couple of years. FANTOONS is an on-going comic strip based on Rush and some other great bands that was created by David Calcano back in 2012. You can check out some samples of their work on Facebook and at They've released a couple of books already, but their next one is their most ambitious project to date and will be a 150-page book all about our favorite band Rush with a working title of Comicspheres: A retrospective of Rush Toons by FANTOONS. They just launched a Kickstarter project in order to cover printing costs for the book which is otherwise all finished, with a planned release at this summer's San Diego Comic Con. Be sure to check out the Kickstarter page for all the details, sample art, a great video and to see how you can help out. Based on your level of support you can recieve a copy of the book, signed prints, t-shirts and more. I should also mention that I'll be writing the book's foreword, so I'd better get to work!
